The British military has selected Lockheed Martin as the lead on a $1 billion contract, part of a major $1.6 billion upgrade of the British army’s Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle. Lockheed will be responsible for upgrades and enhancements that will extend the vehicles’ service life beyond 2040.
“We are delighted that the MoD has selected us to lead this critical upgrade effort designed to maximize the investment made in Warrior vehicles to extend their lives into the 2040s” said Alan McCormick, vice president and managing director of Lockheed’s Ampthill business.
“The WCSP will provide a highly capable vehicle to fulfill the British Army’s current and future requirements,” continued McCormick. “It will also bring significant job opportunities for our team of suppliers based here in the UK.”
